Muscat Ottonel

Muscat Ottonel is perhaps the least valued of the Muscat family of highly aromatic varieties. Its wine is typically faintly colored, and its aroma is notably lighter than the potent grapey essences of the superior Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains and Muscat of Alexandria. Believed to be a cross of Chasselas with a Muscat varietal grape, Muscat Ottonel is more cold-hardy than its relatives. This quality has allowed it to be widely grown in cooler areas of central and Eastern Europe, where it is best used as a late harvest white wine. There are major plantings in Austria, and in France’s Alsace area, where it has become the most grown Muscat. The variety has also established itself in Canadian vineyards in Ontario and British Columbia. And in the US, New York State’s Finger Lakes region is showing promising results in tests with a clone of Muscat Ottonel.
